Diwali is almost here! As a kid, much as I loved crackers, I hated the noise that it came with. I just wanted to get under the blankets and hide. It was heart-breaking to hear our neighbour’s dog howl and bark all night long. It was also heart-breaking to see little kids and babies react to Lakshmi bombs and 10000 ladis. But it doesn’t matter what age you are. Many of us dread the festival just because of the deafening noise it brings.
Do your bit this year and avoid crackers. Peace!
Appalled by the overflowing garbage and frothing lakes everywhere, I’m starting a #SwachhBharat series. Here’s the first, my take on this mass murder we call Ganesh Visarjan or Immersion. We kill fish, birds, the rivers that we supposedly worships, lakes, ponds, plants, animals, and ultimately, humans. Chunks and bits of shattered, broken Ganeshas, heavy metals, paper, bottles, plastic, cement.
It’s high time we put an end to this. Ganesha does not want you to kill!
